6 Things to Know About College Orientation

by

So it’s the night before Orientation, and you’re wondering what to expect. Here are six things you should know about Orientation at the Mount:

Get ready for LOTS of icebreakers. *Cue the inward groan.* Start thinking of your two truths and a lie now. Yes, they can be cheesy, but icebreakers are a staple of any orientation. They really do help you get to know other people better, and that’s kind of the whole point! So try to play along no matter how silly you think the activity is going to make you look.
